RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum posted a video on X (formerly Twitter) showing off the nail marks she sustained from the belligerent man. “Wasn’t going to post about this but might as well tell you babies to stay safe out there,” Muse, 29, wrote. “Last night at the club I was assaulted by a man that was groping me and clinging onto the back of my pants and wouldn’t let go of me even tho I told him to let go of me and NO multiple times.” “He then got upset I wanted nothing to do with him and proceeded to attack me,” Muse continued. “I’m okay, was a bit shaken up last night- but people need to understand NO IS NO!” Muse, born Kevin Candelario, told Entertainment Weekly that she had tried multiple times to get the intoxicated man off of her. “I was trying to push him off, telling him multiple times to stop [and to] get off me,” she told the outlet, adding that she didn’t want to name the venue for security reasons. “After I shoved his arm off my pants, finally, he got upset and grabbed both of my arms and f–king clawed his nails into my skin and was trying to fight me,” she recalled.

Muse later added the club’s security was “diligent” in handling the man and that she felt safe the morning following assault but wanted to stress the importance of consent. “I believe it doesn’t matter how friendly or promiscuous [I am] or how short my shorts are,” the Bronx native says.
